To Everlasting



The wearied soul does not sleep

He does not find a moments rest

For, he has not done enough

The man made law has put him to test

Nor has he collected all his treasures yet


A test of love and faith and truth

This test was Not

The test was lust, flesh, and want

Again led to fall short of his own needs


To these that wait in faith, love, and truth

A lively Kingdom awaits

Murders, drunkenness, and hatred has no place

Taking the hand of another here

Time to hear, laugh, and deeply care


Let the days we share now be called


They aren’t moments, months, or years

but Everlasting

The one, Everlasting Joy and the other

Everlasting Hate
